Yabu – The house of Katsu

Yabu claims to stand out from the rest of the Japanese food chain with its commitment to quality in ingredients to cooking method. Honestly, the service here is really good. The service waiters are really alert and knowledgable of their products. Below are some more pictures of their 'standout points'.

It's so soft and succulent that it's easy to bite into despite the thickness. Kobe beef costs a fortune, I remember eating a few cubes of it at Sugi years ago and it set us back P2,000+. Thus, P500+ for a complete meal with Kurobuta pork seemed reasonable to me. This Premium Tonkatsu Set comes with unlimited Japanese rice, a bowl of miso soup, pickles, unlimited cabbage with sesame dressing, and a bowl of fresh fruits for dessert.


For lunch, we mall-hopped to SM Megamall to satisfy our craving for katsu. If you follow us on Twitter or Instagram, you could probably tell from the amount of Yabu photos we post how much we love this place. Good food, good service and good vibes. Our only complaint was the long wait for a table, especially during peak hours. Not anymore!

The set is good for sharing and is a safe choice if you don’t want to experiment on your orders. And since it’s mixed, you pretty much get a bit of “everything” in one plate. The prawns were good, too, if i may say
